  1. Hey Sandy, I have a Magellan Meridian Gold with pc data cable and 2gb SDcard that I am trying to get rid of. I havent used it in a pretty good while but I put some batteries in it today and it fired up and locked onto 7-8 sats. It works well, has no major flaws except for the fact it is an older unit and it is a bigger unit than most handhelds. Shoot me a PM with a price range or what your willing to spend. I will make you a very good deal on it. Heres a review done on the Magellan Meridian Gold gps: http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/magellanmeridiangold.php
  2. Thanks for the response but it doesnt say anything about how many satellites in the upper right corner. It does say that it found my location (within 2400 meters..LOL) so I am assuming I dont have an unlocked chipset. Any other suggestions?? Update: I actually got Google Maps working with the GPS and it also shows all 500 caches from the gpx I uploaded to the phone.Now I just have to get outside and see what kind of sat strength I can get. Hopefully this will work until I can get a full fledged GPSr in the very near future.
  3. Hey guys, sorry to resurrect an older thread but I had to switch from T-Mobile to Verizon because of where I'm living at now, T-Mobile coverage is hit or miss. I bought the Samsung Saga smartphone and was wondering if there are any good geocaching apps for it that ya'll know of? I have been looking and looking all day today and have come up blank except for one app that is 50 bucks to buy. I would just save the 50 bucks and put it towards a decent GPSr before buying that app. If thers not any apps for it, I may see if I can send it back in during the 30 day return period and get something else. Or just say screw it and buy a gpsr anyway. Ya'lls thought?
  4. LOL..I was screwed before we even started.
  5. Way too many upsets.....Vegas, your in 5th, your not doing too bad. I am pulling up the rear. With the Florida, Notre Dame, UNLV, and Vande upsets, I was screwed right off the bat. Florida had 3-4 chances to win their game but threw it away.
  6. Just completed mine. This ought to be good....
  7. I will give this a shot. Email sent.
  8. I posted on Nebraskache yahoo group. I do plan on attending some get togethers, but funds are tight and my truck isnt the best on gas so the meet will have to be fairly close. Thanks for the tips and Happy Caching, Jon Edit: I did make my 50th find today!! WooHoo!!!
  9. I live in the Lincoln, Nebraska area and have been doing pretty good finding some caches but it is kinda boring doing it by yourself. If anyone else in the Lincoln area feels the same way, drop me a PM and maybe we can get together sometime and cache. I have been a member of the site for about 2 years now but am just starting to really get into it. I am single so I don't have a family to share caching with, my brother and his wife and kid live in Lincoln also but they don't seem to take to caching like I do. Anyway, if anyone wants a caching partner, let me know. Jon
  10. In addition to communicating with the local Air Traffic Control facility, all aircraft in the Persian Gulf AOR are required to give the Iranian Air Defense Radar (military) a ten minute 'heads up' if they will be transiting Iranian airspace. This is a common procedure for commercial aircraft and involves giving them your call sign, transponder code, type aircraft, and points of origin and destination. I just flew with a guy who overheard this conversation on the VHF Guard (emergency) frequency 121.5 MHz while flying from Europe to Dubai. The conversation went like this... Iranian Air Defense Radar: 'Unknown aircraft you are in Iranian airspace. Identify yourself.' Aircraft: 'This is a United States aircraft. I am in Iraqi airspace.' Air Defense Radar: 'You are in Iranian airspace. If you do not depart our airspace we will launch interceptor aircraft!' Aircraft: 'This is a United States Marine Corps FA-18 fighter. Send 'em up, I'll wait!' Air Defense Radar: (no response ... total silence)
  11. Springfield, Ga here. Used to be in Jackson Tennessee. Looking for fellow cachers around the Springfield/Rincon area.
